E r o s – H e r o

based on the novel Eros-Hero by Alexandros Papadiamantis

Unfulfilled love. Human love. Can they coexist? In the novel “Eros-Hero”, Alexandros Papadiamantis gives his answer to this question, influenced by the social framework of his time. ECHODRAMA Cultural Group dramatizes in its own way the emotions and dilemmas reflected through the characters of the novel.

With contemporary choreography and original music inspired by tradition and expressed in a contemporary way, ECHODRAMA Cultural Group dramatises thoughts about where the repression of feelings by the social environment can lead. The narration and the lyrics of the songs taken directly from Papadiamantis’ text, combined with live vocals and percussion, enrich the performance, adding the power of tradition to the contemporary element of the choreography.
